Google is currently redesigning the graphics app for smartphones, especially in the area planning area. A few days ago we reported on new route planning, which will be visually and structurally different. But the actual planning of the navigation paths will be a little different in the future, which will be more intelligent, and the factors will be combined. We will tell you soon what is new.
Let’s start right away with the most recent leak. Google plans a new design and a slightly different way of handling it. In the future, it will be possible to compare all the different types of ways directly in one list, which was not so easy before. Google This will loosen the look by splitting the top with the start and target, allowing the view to float over the map.
Route planning will soon be different and more practical
A direct comparison of the old with the new looks like this:
Google plans routes based on environmental factors and takes safety into account
It has long been reported that this will play a role in the future if there is a path that does not have too much deviation More environment. If another route only takes a few more minutes, with fewer traffic lights or traffic jams, Google Maps prefers this route with less CO2. You can definitely turn it off again. In this context, the ecological zones found in more and more cities also play a role.
The announcement to make route planning safer is even newer. “Safe routing” prefers roads and roads with fewer accidents. But the weather should play a role, which is not important in the German winter. For this and other discoveries, Google has not yet provided exact dates for the releases.
Do you have any other or special requests for route planning on Google Maps?
